Halloween is in a about a week. If you are like most parents some of you are already for this holiday! But for many of us we are acting like nothing is happening. Well I have news for you! These tips will help you not only save time but money too!!!
Save money by letting them use a costume they already have– you may save just by looking in your closet or your kids dress up box. (Note: this may only work with small children. Use it while you can.
Plan Early– don’t wait until the last minute to ask your kids what they want to be. This will leave them scrambling and you crazy trying to get what they want. If you cannot plan early start thinking of the items they already have around like old costumes to put one together!
Recycle- Get old costumes from friends or a thrift shop. You will find this can be your lifesaver if you are low on funds. It is good to ask friends for this because one kid past costume are and other child’s treasure.
Save Money by adding accessories– you can enhance your dress up truck to make a new costume just by adding accessories. You can save big just by going to the dollar store.
Buy online– buying online will always save you in a few ways. Usually, the items are discounted, and they have a variety of options. I would say shop on Amazon Prime. Keep in mind those popular costumes might be gone but you can find others that can make Halloween fun!
(Keep in mind likes other holidays the day after Halloween, the costumes prices get slashed, plan early for next year!!!!
Use these tips they will help you to be the super parents you always wanted to be on a day you should be wearing an “S” on your chest too!!!

We celebrated our October Networking Mixer on October 20th at Revolution Golf and Grille in Williamsburg. All who attended had so much fun meeting our lovely vendors who were very informative on their brands and we enticed our guest with Swag Bags loaded with items and deals from local Companies . We also got to enjoy some amazing Bruch Favorites like French Toast and a Bloody Mary Bar!
Like many of our events locations Revolution Golf and Grille was perfect place to have an event like ours, especially with all the connections we made. I know a lot of you wanted to come, but for whatever reason a lot of you could not make it.
I wanted to share the links to our fabulous vendors, that way you can still shop from them if you're looking for last minute gifts for any occasion or more information on them. Take advantage of the many specials they are offering. Don't forget to tell them you saw them featured with Hampton Roads Housewives In The City.
